Your thermostat could have problem and it confused the temporature inside the dryer. You should change the thermostat. To make sure you can use VOM (vol-amp-milimeter) device to check it. If it reads 0, it means OK. If it reads another number, it is faulty and need changing a new one.

it could be a worn motor bearing, but they usually last for 20 years, i would guess that you have a worn drum roller, the thing that holds up the drum and looks like a wheel.
if your sure the motor has a worn bearing then replacing the motor is not easy as you have to unscrew the blower wheel from the motor shaft.
it also may be that you are talking about the idler pulley being worn. it is the device that holds tension against the belt and they also will wear out and be "wobbly"

No dryers are not self leveled. You may not have put the legs on ? they come in the box or if you have then you need to prop them up with a 1x4 or something.

The drum of a dryer is supported b the front and back of the unit, spins on a felt gasket. Noise is coming from rollers or their is something stuck between drum and the felts. The pulley is a piece of springy metal with a plastic wheel on it, could also be worn. If you take off front of dryer, drum will come loose, check to see if something is stuck. Common for loose change to get jambed in felts. Also spin rollers and pulley to see if need to be replaced. I still think something is caught in felt.
